“Leave the world behind” By Roisin O'Farrell

The Doorway Gallery is delighted to host an exhibition by Roisin O’Farrell called “Leave the world behind” on Thursday, September 3rd between 6-7.30pm on 24 South Frederick Street. The exhibition will run until September 24th.
 
Róisín O’Farrell returns to the Doorway Gallery in September for her first Solo Show in Dublin for two years. In this highly anticipated show she turns to flowers for inspiration. Featuring the heavy blooms of peonies and roses and the striking but familiar geraniumRóisín once again takes a traditional and charming subject and brings to it a contemporary feel.
 
The white and soft-pink flowers, in glorious, exuberant bloom are described in oil with a painterly, almost sculptural quality and are set against a background of colour and rich texture.
 
The show will also feature new work from her Interiors series and her much loved Welly Boots find a new setting in the form of the Aga oven.

“Róisín’s work is beautiful, detailed, powerful, strong and decidedly female.” Barbara Muir, Canadian Artist & Writer
 
Impactful, beautiful and a little vintage” Riki Neill, RNN Comuinications
 
“ I fell in love with Roisin’s work when I first saw her famed tea cup series, which in turn led me to explore her work further. For me she awakens memories of childhood, from her wellington boots at the door to my personal favourite Hunter’s Hotel in Wicklow, which now hangs in my home in Italy” Gavin Lambe Murphy
 
“Your work is gorgeous!”  Pauline  McLynn
